British Name, American Design, Indian Owned, who wouldve thought...
Jaguar, a name that carries with it a history of racing glory, advanced design, and upperclass refinement, however in recent years Jaguar has become the laughing stock of performance and luxury brands in the auto industry, with substandard cars, borrowed and shared designs with of all companies, Ford. This more recent history almost drove the company out of buisness. But recently, they have been purchased as some of you know by the indian investor group known as TATA, one of the first cars that was produced under the new ownership was a modified design by ford that had never been used.
